 As a group, one of our favorite recipe sites is Six Sisters.  You can find a BUNCH of great recipes on their site.  This is just one of them.  

In fact, this recipe comes from a page where they give you a shopping list and directions to make 8 Freezable Slow Cooker Meals in an hour.  You don’t need a group with a website like that!!  

This is just my favorite of those 8 recipes:

Directions:

Garnish: chopped black olives, shredded Parm cheese

When ready to eat, remove from freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. 

 

Okay, I may have promoted their site a little much, but I have one more quick link over there.  It is their Cheesy Garlic Sticks.  

(Note: I do not get paid by Six Sisters.  I’m just super excited that I found their site and I wanted to share them with you!!)
